News: Young is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: Young's path to regular playing time at DH and in the corner outfield became a little murkier Saturday with the acquisitions of Alejandro De Aza and Kelly Johnson, but neither player will take Young's spot in the lineup Sunday. Instead, Young will receive a routine day off, with David Lough joining the starting lineup in his stead. Because of Young's excellent offensive production this season, he still likely represents a better alternative than any of those other players, but if he were to start slumping, his at-bats could dry up quickly.(RotoWire, )

News: Young is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports. Impact: Steve Clevenger will serve as the designated hitter in the series finale against Tampa Bay as Young sits after three straight starts. It makes sense, given Young's 2-for-10 career mark against Thursday's starter, Jeremy Hellickson, but Young figures to continue seeing at least semi-regular playing time.(RotoWire, )

News: Young went 3 for 3 with a three-run home run in Monday's 9-1 win over Tampa Bay. Impact: Young had been just 6 for 30 (.200) with one RBI over his previous eight games.(STATS, 11:16am)

News: Young went 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBI on Monday against the Rays. Impact: Young has seen more playing time in August, but it hasn't resulted in increased production as he has seen his batting average decrease from .328 to .311. He has not hit over .300 since 2006 as a member of the Rays, so he may be starting to come back down to earth.(RotoWire, )

News: Young is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Impact: The lack of an available DH spot for the Orioles' three-game series at Wrigley Field will keep Young out of the lineup yet again. Look for him to see more regular at-bats when the Orioles resume American League play Monday against the Rays.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Aug 23, 2014
News: Young is out of the lineup again Saturday, Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com reports. Impact: Young will sit again for the second game of the series at Wrigley Field, but manager Buck Showalter figures to find a way to work him in Sunday against lefty Tsuyoshi Wada. While Young has posted just a .682 OPS against southpaws this season, he's a .301/.338/.467 career hitter against lefties.(RotoWire, )

News: Young is out of the lineup Friday against the Cubs, MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli reports. Impact: The Orioles are playing in a National League park, so Young -- who typically serves as the DH -- is in line to receive at least Friday off. He could return to the lineup in left field at some point, but Nelson Cruz will occupy that position for the afternoon tilt. The Orioles are scheduled to face lefty Tsuyoshi Wada on Sunday, so look for Young to be back in the lineup then.(RotoWire, )
